This rare signed LP commemorates the 2017 Whitney Biennial Procession by Cauleen Smith with a crowd of participants. This vibrant blue coloured LP is a recording of the two poems spoken during the programme. Side A features Avery R. Young and Tina M. Howell as they lead a choir rehearsal in preparation for the procession. Side B is a live recording of the In The Wake procession that took place on 11 April 2017.
“Protesters always make gorgeous banners. What if I made it as if it was forever? It’s not about power, it’s about holding the space indefinitely. Future and past, you want to hold all of that. You want to celebrate, you want to protest, you want to do all at once.” – Cauleen Smith
This LP is on special offer until the end of the year as part of our Pay It Forward campaign. Through this initiative with the Mayor of London and Crowdfunder, organisations can raise vital funds to stay afloat, rebuild and recover from the impact of Covid-19.
